Funko has announced that the POP! Slave Leia will be reissued in special packaging to celebrate The Force Awakens. Watch for additional releases from their vault until the highly anticipated sequel is released.
After a somewhat disappointing Toy Fair (from a certain point of view), Flyguy and Yakface are back this week to discuss the latest in collecting news. Topics covered this week include Hasbro’s showing at Toy Fair, Hot Toys’ impressive Obi-Wan Kenobi and Funko’s deluge of Hikari figures reveals. We also touch on the official reveal of the UCS TIE Fighter and expanded encyclopedia from LEGO, new customized projects and announcements from Marvel. We wrap things up with our latest review and toy acquisitions – all this and more on Episode 52 of The Realm Recap!
Also, if you prefer an audio-only version, a downloadable MP3 is available as well.
